Counted among one the world’s most successful professionals, Pichai on Wednesday turned 48, but far away from his homeland, India.
Pichai was born in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and holds a metallurgical engineering degree from the country's premier tech institute, the Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur). He holds a Master of Science degree from Stanford University and also a post-graduate degree in business administration from the University of Pennsylvania.
Several hundred youngsters around the world, especially from India, tweeted the tech biggie and called him the pride of the nation.
Of course, seizing the moment and using it to churn out some humour, meme-makers here are sharing jovial birthday wishes for the CEO of what's touted as the world's largest search engine.
Pichai joined Google in 2004 and was later selected to become the CEO in 2015.
